From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The ongoing effort by FTC to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech, by controlling the "fairness" of the media (with "fairness" defined by the Left which Americans are increasingly disinclined to listen to or believe), and by forcing taxpayers to subsidize the next generation of indoctrinated government-mouthpiece "journalists," is cynical and transparent. American mainstream "journalism" is dying because it is biased and mendacious. No one trusts it. The proposed bailout of the Liberal press, and government funded expansion of it, is certainly predictable and consonant with the political thuggery of the current Administration and majority party. It is un-American, socialist, and reprehensible. It will be opposed and, like other Obama initiatives, overturned when Chigago-style politics no longer rule the nation. It is just one more thing to remember in November.
